Qantas Airbus engine disintegrates over Indonesia

Abandoned 15 minutes after takeoff from Singapore, this is the third emergency involving an Airbus. With 400 passengers on board, the airline was forced to make an unscheduled landing when passengers heard a bang and saw sparks fly from one of the engines.

The airlines Air France and Emirates are the only others to use A380 airbuses and have not reacted –¬†unlike Qantas who have grounded their entire fleet. Qantas prides itself on never having had any fatal accidents,¬†would you say this is a case of the airline being over paranoid? Do you think Qantas was right to do this?
